to our program. it's been an interesting week for president obama. he's back from his trip to asia but staring at the same problems he left behind. obama has made peace in the middle east and the war in afghanistan his top foreign policy priorities. but policy on both is now on shaky ground. the administration has been undermining president hamid karzai of afghanistan from the start. but top u.s. officials were there in kabul this week when karzai was sworn in for a second time. he used his inauguration address to announce a crackdown on corruption. and he pledged to shift the security burden to his own troops in five years. but can he do it? we have an exclusive with a key karzai ally, the afghan interior minister, and a fascinating counterpoint from one of karzai's main rivals. then the middle east, with the peace process hopelessly deadlocked, can a new jewish lobby here in the united states shake up the status quo in washington, put its stamp on u.s. policy and rival apac? jeremy ben-ami sits down with me for a face-to-face debate on u.s.-israel policy with a member of the old

out of it. we were looking pretty seriously at a future of a mccain/palin ticket winning. barack obama found his voice and he started talking about how this financial crisis was not the result of just one or two bad apples but a result of ideology of the regulation. that is where he was not telling the truth. it was not just the bush years. what gives me a little bit of a different perspective is because i do not live in the u.s.. i am much less partisan. i am not driven by a desire for democrats to win elections. that is not what drives my riding. during that election campaign, we knew damn well that the key pieces of legislation that created the economic crisis had been created during the clinton years. we knew that this was a better political message to claim that the ideology was bush policy. the problem with the intellectual dishonesty is that it comes back to bite you. if you are lying to yourself and everyone else, then what is to prevent larry summers from coming back and being given the keys to the treasury once again. >> what grade would you give on this issue? >> what grade?

in the -- barack obama. >> yes, and this is what i tracked in the -- track in the book. the ambition of the super brands of the 1990's in companies like starbucks and nike and apple. the equated their ideas with this transcendent injury. they ended up making themselves -- this transcendent in the jury -- imagery. the ended up making themselves -- they ended up making themselves very vulnerable to their consumers demanding more of them. when a company like apple uses gondi in an ad -- ghandi in an ad, or anti racism in their market, it is usually because somebody at their advertising firm did research and found that this would be most resonant with their target. they were not prepared for being held accountable for these ideas when consumers ask why 16- year-old girls are making your speakers for a paltry wages if you believe in treating women fare. -- fair. it is interesting. that kind of activism forced a lot of reforms on companies, but i argue in the introduction that the most significant development in the world of branding is the application of this theory of the hollow corporation and all
